Cliff Lee Making Phillies Debut

For full gameday, visit Phillies Nation.

Philadelphia Phillies (58-42) at San Francisco Giants (56-46)
Cliff Lee (7-9, 3.14 ERA) vs. Ryan Sadowski (2-3, 4.81 ERA)

Tonight's the night Cliff Lee will be making his much anticipated Phillies debut. He'll also try to halt the Phillies two game skid.

The reigning American League Cy Young winner is having a terrific season with a 3.14 earned run average and 1.30 WHIP in 152 innings with the Tribe. He had a 7-9 record, but lacked run support. The Phillies failed to support their pitchers over the last two games. They've only scored two runs in last two games, very uncharacteristic for the Phillies.

Ryan Sadowski started his Major League career by throwing 13 consevutive scoreless innings. Since, he has allowed 13 earned runs in the last 11.1 innings he has pitched. However, he has pitched well at AT&T Park. His ERA at home is 1.50 in 12 innings.

Sadowski is figured out now and won't pitch well against a heated up Phillies lineup. Expect a 10-2 blowout from the Phils'. Can't wait to watch the game! :)
